What do we do when we face challenges  

that make us wonder what’s ahead?  

The answers are not always easy,  

and the direction is not always clear.  

In these circumstances,  

our hope is in God alone.  

Our lives and our times are in His hands,  

and He assures us  

that He is the rock we can stand upon.  

Father, I believe in the wisdom of your ways,  

the goodness of your love,  

and the assurance of your presence  

as you keep me close every step of the way.  

Today’s Reading: Psalm 37:23-25 NLT 

The Lord directs the steps of the godly. 
    He delights in every detail of their lives. 
Though they stumble, they will never fall, 
    for the Lord holds them by the hand. 

Once I was young, and now I am old. 
    Yet I have never seen the godly abandoned 
    or their children begging for bread.
